Comes in a plastic zip-lock bag, vinyl and dvd are housed in individual card sleeves.

There are no track titles on the release, but are listed on the Skam website. There, the tracks of side a are listed as 1a to 1f.

The DVD takes some of the CD tracks plus two new tracks (all Dolby 5.1 Surround) and mixes them together over visual interpretations. The DVD sleeve has the rating: CERTIFICATE M (however, there is no such film rating, so it is most likely a joke where "M" is referencing Music.)

Absolutely indispensable piece of classic IDM. The DVD is fantastic. However, I'm confused about the track titles. When this came out, I bought the CD and DVD. Now I just purchased the vinyl here on Discogs, and I'm realizing that the track titles are different than those that appear in my digital library for this album. The durations are all the same, so they must be the same tracks.

i couldn't have said that better myself; the meam record is one of skam's finest moments to date. meam did a set for the skam night on the one world radio show. it's a continuous 13-minute piece which contains some of the beats and sounds showcased here but has some gorgeous melodies and beats. as good if not better than this record (if you can find a recording of it).

i think this is probably my favourite of all skams releases, and just one of my favourite releases full stop. it's got industrial/machinery sort of sounds aswell as some awesome beats but with some really nice melodies thrown in too, it basically just has that skam 'sound'. it ranges in places from heavy beats to chilled out synth drones, utterly fantastic release. the dvd is a great bonus too, it's basically the whole ep set to a video, but with some extra bits too including a piece of music which isn't on the record. the guy behind meam also does a lot of skams artwork, he did the skam website aswell as the art work for bola's album fyuti too i think.
